A new cover for our sweetest play – right on time for Valentine’s Day

From 1988 until the end of 2016, Salt-Water Moon was in print with its original yellow cover, which featured now-outdated type design and a production still from one of the original productions of this sweet play. Now, as the play experiences something of a revival, and as the book goes into its eighth printing, we are pleased to show off the newly redesigned cover of Salt-Water Moon.

A Cubist Meditation on the Modern Condition

By Carl Peters

On Meta-Talon today, please enjoy the full text of the presentation given by Carl Peters, recently the author of Studies in Description, to an audience of about 100 attendees at the Modern Languages Association convention in Philadelphia, PA, on January 7, 2017.


Look, I realize that my abstract is more than an abstract but what follows is just a small part of what I could do. I’m going to talk around Hemingway’s greatest achievement, “A Clean, Well-Lighted Place,” presenting my comments as a Cubist meditation on the Modern Condition (with reference to Duchamp and some others)…

Read scenes from Empire of the Son

Empire of the Son is the story of two generations of CBC broadcasters and the radio silence between them. It premiered in Vancouver in 2016 and was nominated for six Jessie Richardson Awards, and Tetsuro Shigematsu is currently touring Empire of the Son across Canada. Empire of the Son is also the first Talon book to be published in the Spring 2017 season – it’s now available! – and we invite you to read brief but tantalizing excerpts on Meta-Talon.
